Apologies, I should have mentioned those details in my initial post. The tank is five feet long and has a depth of two feet. The angelfish and blood parrot mostly ignore each other, although the parrot occasionally shoos the angelfish away during feeding time. The other inhabitants consist of ten harlequin tetras as well as a juvenile albino pleco. It's the pleco that the parrot often clashes with. They often fight over the algae wafers that I give the pleco and the parrot gives up eventually when the pleco stands its ground.Never had angels or BP’s but I’m sure someone will chime in asking a few questions like your tank size and how the existing 2 fish are getting along at the moment. Also if anything else is in there with them. Good luck
I would never risk itI am considering adding a couple of young angelfish to my community tank. However, I am afraid that the existing angelfish as well as the blood parrot might start to harass any new additions. Would it be possible for me to add more angelfish without any fighting taking place? Thanks in advance.

I agree it can be done and worth the shot but have to be prepared to remove them if they aren't accepted. I actually worry more about splitting my pair and putting the dominant and always aggressive male with the other males and juveniles than putting juveniles in with the 4 adults that never paired or spawned males.I would risk it, but only if I had a spare tank or other plan B in case it didn’t work out, which is a definite possibility. But I would actually prefer to introduce two juvenile angels to a tank with established adults rather than two more adults which would be seen as much more of a threat and might be more likely to fight back, or be badly battered, I don’t think adults would hurt the juveniles too badly. The trouble might come as they mature. I am not sure about the parrot, having never kept one.
